Report: Brooks Cycles Track League

The Final week of the 2016 season of the Brooks Cycles Track League took place on Thursday 8th September with a large turnout. As appears to happen every year the weather is far more settled in September with the league run off under clear blue skies at the start then when under the floodlights were turned on the temperatures stayed warm.

The night started with the Freewheelers League and with the schools back the numbers went up to the best of the year with 29 riders taking part. All 18 races were keenly contested and the top point’s scorers on the night were as follows;

Group 1 Zac Edwards/Thomas Mould Lyme RC 9 points
Group 2 Nathan O’Donovan Lyme RC 12 Points
Group 3 James Swinnerton Lyme RC 12 Points

In the main league A Class events Joel Partington ( Swinnerton Cycles ) completed a first ever overall double as his points on the night ensured he won both the Endurance and Sprint Leagues. In the endurance events he won the 10 laps scratch and was a member of the winning team sprint event before he won the final 30 laps scratch race at the end of the night. In between last years overall Endurance winner Jacob Booth won the devil race.

In the Sprint races Joel won the Keiren League race event on the night and clinched his hat trick of titles. The team of Dan Cooper ( Lichfield CCC) Josh Spendelow ( Brooks Cycles) and Aleshia Mellor ( Lyme Rc ) took the team sprint with ½ lap winners being Steve Cronshaw( Brooks Cycles ) Barney Swinnerton ( Swinnerton Cycles ) and Phil Houlton ( Brooks Cycles.

In the B Class events Dan Cooper won the opening 10 laps race with Farley Barber ( Lyme RC ) won the devil. Charlie Fisher ( Newport CC) took the 30 laps scratch race. The overall league leader Alex Coates ( Lyme ) missed the nights races however he had a large enough lead to take the overall title for this year.

The final C class league event saw nick Moore ( Newcastle RC ) take the win in the scratch race and also the overall title.

In the youth Joel Ackers ( Sportcity Velo ) won the 200m TT, scratch and Keiren to cement his overall title win for this year which has seen him ride superbly throughout and he is a deserved winner.
Newcastle Track Cycling association would like to thank all the officials and helpers for giving up their valuable time this year and to make 2016 another successful season. We would also like to thak all the riders who took part and look forward to seeing you all next year for the 2017 season.

A date for your diary is Friday 21st October when the Prize Presentation takes place at Silverdale Football Club.
